What is a 1031 Exchange and How Does it Work?

A 1031 exchange is a tax-deferral tool that real estate investors can use to build wealth, save on taxes, and expand their portfolio. This strategy is applicable to any investor who wants to sell an existing property, and trade up for higher cash flow.
